Root Cause Analysis

I’m so thankful to you for creating these courses, which are absolutely amazing!!! The best part is the concise, precise and engaging manner in which you explain the course material—best use of my time and money ever!!

A really well facilitated course. Easy to follow and it included some excellent tips impressively condensed into sizable chunks! I really appreciated the templates as well.

I find Karen’s approach to problem solving much more efficient and realistic than most methodologies I’ve been exposed to.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course on standard work. Mike Osterling’s delivery was so engaging that I lost all track of time.

Another outstanding course! Clear, focused, and engaging content, visuals and presentation!
